I wanted to reach out to you during this sad time to offer my condolences. While nothing will completely take away your grief, by meditating on God's promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going. I have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting. Here it promises that God "will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

I am so sorry for your loss. I pray you will find comfort in the hope God gives of seeing your dear loved one again on a paradise earth. John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3, 4.
